In line with the fan’s expectations and a lot of pre-release hype created around the two films, Thala and Ilayathalapathy starrers have proved to be biggest hits unveiling a grand start to 2014 Tamil box office.
While Jilla is doing exceptionally well in Kerala due to the huge fan following Vijay enjoys in the state and also because of the presence of Malayalam superstar Mohanlal,Veeram is below mark in the state comparatively.
